WRITING IS HARD

****





I have a love-hate relationship with the writing life. I wouldn’t wish to have any other kind of life . . . and on the other hand, I wish it were easier. And it never is.
The reward comes in the unexpected inspiration. The reward comes from creating a character who lives and breathes and is perfectly real. But such effort it takes to attain the reward! I would never have believed it would take such effort.
- Elizabeth George, Write Away: One Novelist’s Approach to Fiction and the Writing Life.

My reward comes from the passion and fulfilment my writing gives me. From the challenge to get it right. From the thrill of working it out. From knowing that perseverance pays off.

Where does your reward come from?
